You can contact Galileo scopes directly here; http://www.galileosplace.com/
Some of what you need may be available at a well stocked hardware store.
Eyepieces, and barlows can be bought from many on-line retailers. Here is one: http://agenaastro.com/
The CD rom is probably just a planetarium software. You can download free software here: www.stellarium.org
The scope does not need computer software to operate. However, you will find the free software above very helpful in learning the sky. Color filters are really NOT very useful; only the moon filter is needed which you can buy from the retailer listed above.
Actual proprietary parts like the accessory tray must be bought directly from Galileo telescopes. But a hardware store will have springs and bolts and nuts.
Remove the eyepiece, and look down the focuser tube. The small diagonal mirror should have the full main mirror visible. If not, then adjust the diagonal mirror until all the main mirror is viaible, and the diagonal is centered. Then the main mirror is aligned until all the images viewed are concentric, with your eye being in the middle. That should do it.
